Stealing Milk From Blind Cows



Some people are sightless, in this sense they are blind.
Some people are witless, no insight in the mind.
Some people are clueless: "blind alleys" are nonstop.
Some people are lawless: at "blind pigs" find the slop.
Some people never question: vouchsafe "blind loyalty."
Some people never audit: "blind faith" fidelity.
Some people exploit others: stealing milk from "blind cows."
Some people fracture pledges: "blind to their solemn vows."
Some people wink at evil by "turning a blind eye."
Some people squint obliquely, yet their "blind spot" deny.
Some people are heedless: struck by "blind date" assault.
Some people are bewitched: "blind to a lover's fault."
Some people are unbiased: to race they're "color-blind."
Some people are accepting: a "blind side" choice in kind.
Some people "blind in one eye, can't see out the other."
Some people incarnate via insightful mother.
